Welcome to Lupus NewsLog
Lupus is an oddity among illnesses, with its colossal and curious collection of symptoms and because it carries components of so many other diseases. It’s always been mighty difficult to diagnose and treat but nowdays, it’s very interesting to researchers, for good reason.
As autoimmune disease rates escalate worldwide, accumulating scientific evidence links this phenomenon to our toxic terrain, our nutrition, lifestyles and many other environmental factors. An accurate understanding of lupus can lead to solutions for it and for other diseases.
Well known physician, medical maverick and healthcare advocate Bernie Siegel makes it clinically clear, "Who are the best teachers? The people who didn't die when they were supposed to." Then, class must be in session, folks, because - here we are. Nowdays, we lupies are living longer, stronger, more satisfying lives, because we’re activists for our own survival.
